economy in the new -- committee. would president make a mistake to nominate susan rice as secretary of state? >> i do think that embassador rice is viewed as a political operative and i don't think he's going to nominate her. as i have said, i'll give any nominee a fair hearing and i will in this case. but i think the president realizes on both sides of the aisle there are a lot of concerns there's a fact these a political operative and not viewed as a principal. >> let me just quickly -- you don't think she would pass the senate? >> well, i don't know what will happen. obviously there are many people like me that always give nominees a fair hearing. i don't think she's going to be nominated for a lot of reasons. >> senator schumer? >> yeah, the solution here, a lot of republicans don't want to vote for susan rice if she's nominated by the president. they shouldn't filibuster. they don't have to vote but don't require 60 votes. that's traditionally what is done with presidential cabinet nominees when a president is elected or regleeked we have to leave it there. senator schumer and

may have been left out and that is why we saw susan rice put out. >> we know that thomas hicker ry was the man who ran the accountability review board. my question to you is whether or not you will ask hillary clinton the question as to whether or not she was in the white house did she watch this in real time can you answer the questions we haven't heard answers to as opposed to questions we already know the answers to such as there wasn't enough security. >>> she needs to ask the questions. just as importantly she needs to ask she was in the white house but who was in the white house dealing with this issue. so far it seems the only person they have put out there to speak about this has been susan rice. hillary clinton needs to ask tough questions about what her role was. if she didn't have a role in this who did you need to look at who dropped the ball. diplomatic security falls under the purview of the state department. it falls under hillary clinton's purview. we note hillary clinton reports to the white house. when you are taking about the white house you are speaking about th

america is all about. >> final point, senator durbin. susan rice. will she be the president's secretary of state nominee and could she get confirmed in the senate at this point? >> i can't say that because the president has not told me what his decision will be. there have been two excellent names mentioned, ambassador rice and my colleague, senator kerry. either one of them would have a tough job following the great job of hillary clinton, but they could both serve this country in an extraordinary way as secretary of state. >> you're saying that rice could get confirmed? >> i do believe so. i think at the end, some of the criticisms against her have been unwarranted. many have gone just too far. there is really a basic feeling of fairness. she is an extraordinary person. she's certainly well educated and has really served our nation well as ambassador to the united nations. >> all right. we'll leave it there. senator durbin, congressman mccarthy, thank you very much. >> thank you for having us. >>> coming up, the showdown over the debt. who wins and who loses? including why one promine

they see the republicans going after susan rice for four or five weeks or for three or four weeks. they now see the republicans seemingly standing in the way of a deal that could cost them in terms of their paychecks, money coming out of their paychecks at the expense of protecting rich people. that's what they see. that's what they take in. then they're asked, you know, who do you blame? there's only one obvious answer to most people, the republicans. they're going to bear the brunt of this. they are doing tremendous damage to their brand. and they have done tremendous damage to their brand over the last ten months during the election cycle and now during this negotiating process. >> they certainly have. i would only add a kauf yaccave stein, if republicans want to destroy their brand for good, make the term "republican" absolutely meaningless, go ahead and support tax increases without getting appropriate cuts, corresponding cuts. and this idea that some are suggesting that they just cave because it will make things easier, no. if they cave, raise taxes and get nothing in return of substa

list to proceed secretary of state, hillary clinton, susan rice is thought to be a leading contender, but some republicans have been highly critical of rice following the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador because they think she is an easy target, then they have a problem. >> senator mccain? >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> senator john mccain jokingly gave the nomination to john kerry. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and would be easily confirmed by his colleagues. >> he is listed also to replace leon pennetta. senior democrats say ashton carter is on the list and former nebraska senator, a republican, could represent a reach across the aisle. >> we are in a stronger position today as a country than we were in '08. >> tim geithner said he will stay at his post until inauguration. and the chief of staff is often named as a potential replacement. a poll asked if he thought president obama would pick good cabinet members. 58% said they thought he would. >> the u.s. military wants its people to be invisible.

clinton finally came out and gave a strong endorsement to susan rice. some people, including maureen dowd, would suggest maybe that took a little longer than was necessary. >> it was striking. it was striking how long it took. and it didn't go unnoticed, obviously. >> she's traveling. >> you see john kerry being embraced by republicans. i think a lot of democrats would also like him to be the next secretary of state. where are we in that fight? we have so many issues that are on the front pages now. i think the president needs to get his person in as soon as possible. >> well, my sense is that secretary clinton weighing in perhaps suggests that the nomination is coming soon. i've talked to people on all sides of this. there's no question that benghazi continues to be litigated. even on the democratic side, there is some division on this. i've talked to democratic senators who have questioned whether she has the standing, the stature, to be secretary of state. so obviously there's some division about how people view susan rice. but here's the bottom line. she's very close to the president
